Reducine Is Back Reformulated
Posted By: old jo (Tomball, TX) Oct 7, 2008

I have used Reducine for years off and on again for that one horse whom comes into the barn with bad cracks (ie. almost any Throubred.) Anyway a vet recommended I use it, along with a good farrier and supplement to increase circulation and growth in the compromised hoof of my barrel racing stallion who suffers from under slung heels and other issues resulting from an old laminitis episode. I use it twice a week. Farnam recently discontinued its distribution because of strict regulations on the iodine content of some products. When I could no longer find it at the feed stores, farrier supplies or online, I started a searching and buying up any I could find still left on the shelves. However, now the manufactures has reformulated it and lowered the iodine content from 2.2% to 2.0%. Which I personally don't think will make much difference in the product’s effectiveness and me, my horse and the “Old Timer” will still be happy.

been using it for years
Posted By: Old Timer (ALTAMONT, NY) Jun 29, 2008

Many years ago before I was an old timer, I was given a home remedy by an old trainer for hoof dressing that encourages hoof growth and keeps the foot supple and healthy.....that was to mix 1/2 half plain old crisco (in the can) shortning with 1/2 plain old Reducine....apply with paintbrush to coronary band and everywhere on foot there are no nails (will cause nails to loosen if you paint over nailholes). My thoroughbreds usual horrible feet are beautiful. I highly recommend the reducine! And this is the first I'm hearing that they may discontinue it? That would be a shame after such a successful history. Hopefully, the manufacturer won't be that stupid.

Multi-Purpose Goo
Posted By: one year user (LYNDEN, WA) Jan 24, 2008

My trimmer recommended this product to me for putting on my mares white hooves that are very weather cracked, one is even split way up to almost the coronet band and getting even bigger at the bottom. It does a good job of saying goodbye to bacteria that can cause cracks, and helps moisturize the hoof. From what I can tell it contains some sort of oil, pine tar, and has the smell of iodine. It works well for taking care of the cracks. Only disadvantage is it takes several months (maybe even 4 or 5) of regular use to get the hoof completely healed. My neighbor also told me that is works well on cuts, sores, and just about anything. She has used it for all sorts if things with results. I am disappointed to hear that it has maybe been discontinued, and so is my trimmer who has used it for many, many years.
